Digvijay Alleges RSS Received Funds From ISI!!

In case anyone was thinking this was from The Onion, it is not. This comes from Congress leader Digvijay Singh in an interview in the latest issue of Frontline:
"The same ideology and the same people can set up an organisation under a different name. The RSS itself has more than a thousand organisations. Similarly, the Lashkar-e-Taiba, too, has a front organisation that does charity work. It is the people behind this ideology – whether Hindu or Muslim – who have to be closely followed and investigated. For example, elements within the RSS itself have alleged that RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and Indresh Kumar were receiving money from the ISI [Inter-Services Intelligence]. I am not alleging this. I think all these allegations should be closely investigated."[emphasis added]

Never mind the comparison of RSS with LeT, a favorite leftist trope these days but Mohan Bhagwat and Indresh Kumar receiving ISI funds? Is this a complete fabrication or is he repeating an allegation someone else made? Who exactly are these "elements with the RSS itself" that he refers to? It seems too wild and absurd to be worthy of comment but still, has the RSS said anything about this?

This Diggy is very clear. There is no religion of [muslim]terrorism. Of course, Hindus are terrorists.

Second obsession of all p-s is to equate Hindu and Muslim. Muslim terorists are funded by ISI. Presto, so are Hindu terrorists.

RSS should respond to such comments like Kanchagupta tweeted the other day "all terrorists in India starting Kashmir to Kanyakumari are supported by Digvijay Singh. Let him disprove". (text not verbatim)

This kind of straightforward talk will keep the loose tongue nutters like Digvijay Singh at bay.

His party believes in TBRA (truth by repeated assertion)

RSS should sue Diggy for libel.

Diggy Singh is stupid. He says that he is not alleging this. But plays defensive by saying "elements within the RSS itself have alleged that RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and Indresh Kumar were receiving money from the ISI [Inter-Services Intelligence]."

The very mention of "elements within the RSS" (without naming names) is itself an allegation and funnily he says "I am not alleging this".

Let him first attend to the "elements" within his party. eg. P. Chidambaram, the current bete-noir of Diggy Singh and investigate their role in the nation's security internal and external.
